irony in spades

So, I was already interested in seeing the AngloMania exhibit at the Met in NY, but now that I've read Suzy Menkes column detailing "a Vivienne Westwood gown accessorized with a necklace filled with sperm" and that "a grand state bed has a Gothic scenario of Queen Victoria in her widow's weeds watching her Albert lying in a compromising position in a silver death mask and Alexander McQueen's taut tartan trousers", I'd like to hop on a train pronto and experience these sights for myself.

Particularly that necklace.
